Stockmar wax blocks & crayons
Stockmar Wax Crayons and Blocks - Because children are artists
Stockmar wax crayons awaken the artist in the young child. They guide our children from the first drawing pleasure at home, kindergarten and school. Co-developed by art teachers more than 50 years ago, Stockmar wax crayons are still indispensable and essential for art education today. They are unique and unmatched by their harmonious, strong and at the same time transparent colours, the scent of beeswax and the excellent drawing properties. The crayons are manufactured with no added fillers and have a particularly large amount of colour pigment; they produce their full luminosity through the transparent beeswax. The wax crayons can be opaque or translucent to create layers; also can be scraped or melted.
Stockmar Wax Crayons encourages the development of the senses
• Harmonious colours act on the sense of sight
• Natural beeswax scent nourishes the sense of smell
• The transparency of the colours appeal to the meaning of life
• The pleasant material helps to develop the sense of touch
• Form drawing helps the development of the sense of movement
Blending Colour Techniques using Stockmar Wax Crayons
Very powerful images can be achieved when painting a picture with Stockmar Wax Crayons and Stockmar Watercolours. Pictures that are colored with wax crayons do not absorb the watercolors, so the wax colour image remains.
It is possible to first develop designs with crayons and then create a background with watercolour over the entire picture. You can first paint the entire page with watercolours and after the image is completely dry, paint over it with crayons.
The colors obtained by this mixing technique creates a special luminosity. Because of the Stockmar colour harmony, the colours correspond and harmoniously relate to each other across our full product line, and these images are consistent and very charming.
Stockmar Wax Blocks
The Wax Blocks, which are made from the same materials and available in identical colours to the crayons, have outstanding drawing properties and appeal to the senses. Their size and flat shape mean they sit well in the hand and are specially suited for small children. Children can draw colourful areas easily, and arrive at interesting effects. For example by dragging the long edge of the block in a wave-like fashion across the paper. From the very first 'pencil', Stockmar's assortment of unbreakable Wax Blocks grows as you grow. And so too, the artistic possibilities.
